Best Buy will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
Before we get to the deals, take note: Best Buy will open its doors at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day (Target, meanwhile, will open an hour later at 6 p.m. while other big retailers like Costco are giving their retail employees the night off). "We want to be the first stop for shoppers on Black Friday, and given the overwhelming positive response we've had the past two years opening our stores at 3 p.m., we made a decision to open one hour earlier this year to give our customers even more time to shop our Black Friday sale in-store", Joey Thomas, a J.C. Penney spokesman, said in an e-mail. Target will reopen again at 6 a.m. on Black Friday.
Best Buy offered just over a dozen Black Friday deals early last year, but this year it has gone further by offering hundreds of early Black Friday sales on everything from iPad minis to 4K TVs to Beats Studio2 wireless headphones. While it's unlikely that they are sending armed guards around carrying the 2017 Walmart Black Friday ad in a handcuffed briefcase it will not leak and appear online before they want you to see it. Remember that many of these items are sold as doorbusters, so be vigilant and prepare for a long, long Thanksgiving Day.
